Question about 2003 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cab
ABS pump not an issue, pulled the fuse and have the same result. Alternator running hot to the point where you cannot touch it and this is my third alternator. Have installed one new battery and everything was good for an hour then it seemed that something cut-in and now running hot again.
2003 6.0L KingRanch F250
My 89 crown vic alternator was getting hot quick. seems ford had problems with their plug connectors. they should be cleaned or replaced...

When you replace a alternator make sure battery is fully charged 1275 hydrometer reading on all cells. alternators will get hot. if you purchased from a cheap auto parts store with the lifetime warranty youll find out you purchased a life time of changing substandard parts (and they only replace 3 times)i would suggest you take it to a local rebuilder (whole vechicle) and have tested

SOURCE: not charging
Possibly a fusible link somewhere in the circuit has burned through and disconnected the circuit.A wiring diagram would be needed to look for the location of any fusible links Ohms check the wires involved in the alternator charging circuit to verify continuity.

the belt tensioner is on the lower left of the engine there is a 1/2 drive square hole on the right hand side pulley arm to release the tension its a pain to get at but you can, sometimes it is easier from the bottom

has anyone thought about the regulator, i think that its built into the alt, replace it and then see if the prob continues, you can get a pass on the alt test and still have a bunk regulator

SOURCE: cant get alternator off
i can't send u a diagram, but there is usually a plastic air deflector sheild on the alt. in the focus'. there are 3 small nuts to remove the sheild, i think your last bolt may be under this sheild. they are a pain. most people take the motor mount out and drop the engine a little ways to make it easier. hope this helps you and good luck
